Mod. 92 reblue

I found a nice Winchester '92 in very nice shape. 32-20, carbine, nice bore, good action, but it's been reblued, nicely, but still a reblue. Pawn shop is asking $995.00. Too much I think. Could use educated guesses as to what I should pay for it. Wood is so-so. I can see no areas of rubbed out lettering. Thanks

I just saw this and it's probably too late, but the reblue just really kills it for anything other than shooter value so I would value it on a par with current reproductions.

Charlie nailed it, figure about $400-500 depending upon how cool you think it is.

Offer $350.00 so you have wiggle room. Let them know that the
re-blue job killed any collector value. Be ready to walk away.

Not too late at all. The gun still sits at the pawn shop. I'm a little pissed. The gun really is only a '92 in receiver only. Everything else looks to be a Model '53. The serial number is from 1919, but it's been redone in '53 parts. Let me know what you think. Sure wish I had all the '92's I sold for 500.00.

If you want a shooter I'd stick with my original comment or even a little less because I already knocked it down for no collector value.

There really are two ways to think about the asking price:

The shop didn't know what they were buying a paid too much.

Is the barrel marked Model 53?

They think everyone else doesn't know either.

Chances are you would not be able to buy it at a price we would consider fair.

No 53 markings on the carbine. The barrel is marked '92, but I do think all the parts are more recent. The hammer engravings are not the '92 type I'm used to seeing. It's concivable all the guts and outer parts were replaced with Winchester 53 parts. One interesting thing is, the barrel has a second proof mark. It appears below the WP, with a circle around it mark, near the receiver and barrel joint. The second mark is a "P", with a circle around it. Anyone know what that is? Factory rebarrel perhaps? Let me know what you think.
